    Hey fellow Canadians. Spent first 6 mths of my life in Calgary and someday would like to visit. When I was living in Canada I stayed in Toronto. I moved to the US and have been there ever since I was 13. Was thinking about going back to work a year or two once I am finished nursing school. I remember the Hospital my mom worked at back in the late 80's early 90's, of of Fallstaff if I remember (its been 10 yrs lol). I also remember the nurses I had while I was temporarily at Sick Kids Hospital, I was there when they built that new atrium in the early 90's. Anyways I will definately visit in the summer for Caribana (LOVE IT!).

    I'm a reccent 2006 grad from Stfx in Nova Scotia!!

    Myself and 2 other classmates are moving to California to work. Are there any other maritimers out there in California? It's gonna be a big change but can't say I'll miss the snow all that much.

    I'll still be a Nova Scotia girl at heart!

    Here is a link to nursing programs in Ontario, Canada. Different provinces have various requirements for RN's or RPN's (note that in Ontario, practical nurses are referred to as RPN's but for other provinces, they are LPN's).
    Each school has their own cost for tuition. You would have to research what school you prefer. Obviously, RN education costs more because it is a four year program ( a bachelor of science degree), whereas the RPN program is a two year diploma. Hope this helps you
